We wish our Messy Church family a Merry Christmas and Happy new year. We will start up again 14 February 2021.

Messy Church is a relaxed style of church suitable for all ages.
Values are about being Christ-centred ,and being inter-generational, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

 What Messy Church is and isn’t  . . . . 

Messy Church is  . . . .

  • a style of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality

  • in the words of Claire Dalpra of The Sheffield Centre, UK: ‘Messy Church is an all-age fresh expression of church that offers counter-cultural transformation of family life through families coming together to be, to make, to eat and to celebrate God.’

  • it is primarily for people who don’t already belong to a church.

  • its aim is to introduce Jesus and to grow closer to him.

  • it meets at a time (and sometimes in a place) that suits people who don’t already belong to church.

  • most Messy Churches meet once a month, a few meet more frequently and some meet once a term.

  • it includes a welcome, a creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy, a celebration time involving story, prayer, song and a shared meal.

  • all elements are for, and should include, people of all ages, adults and children.

Held Each Month on the 2nd Sunday.  Next meeting: 10 July 22.
